Unless the LORD builds the house, its builders labor in vain.
This is a place for me to share my journey of faith and life as a stay-at-home mom. My prayer is to inspire and encourage others and record those precious moments of my son's childhood.
I am "reading" a couple of her cookbooks right now and really enjoy them. She adds in a lot of background info about her family, her ranch and her cowboy husband. They've been fun to read. I now use "El Pato sauce" for all things Mexican instead of the taco seasoning packets with all those not-so-good preservatives.
We have a friend from down South who is a wonderful cook. We loved this meal she made for us a few years back, which is a favorite Southern recipe. It's the only recipe I have for black eyed peas, and they're so good. **You may notice this has been on my menu the last three times. Well, I experimented with dried beans/peas and kept forgetting about the amount of prep time I need for that. I'm not so sure that will be a "shortcut" I'll keep - the dried beans thing.
